New Zealand 1999

In 1999 I spent a month in Fiordland on the South Island of New Zealand doing research on the short-tailed bat Mystacina tuberculata, which spends a lot of its time foraging on the ground.

This is the bat, and Jane Sedgeley climbing a tree to set a harp tarp to capture long-tailed bats.
